Hello Reader!!
This is Arijit Bhattacharya,

I am a Ph.D. scholar in Cognitive Neuroscience at The Department of Psychology, Ashoka University, India in collaboration with the Cognitive Neurology Lab, Department of Neurology, National Institute of Mental Health and Neurosciences, India. My area of research lies in the realm of Cognitive Neuroscience; more specifically on Auditory Perception, Music, Dementia, Hallucinations and Memory. I have completed my bachelor's and master's degree (BTech and MTech ) in Biotechnology from School of Biotechnology, KIIT Deemed to be University. I have pursued my master's dissertation thesis from the department of Neurology at The National Institute Of Mental Health and Neuroscience (NIMHANS) followed by a training and research internship in Cognitive Neurology. To grow my knowledge further I have completed X Series Certification in Neuroscience from Harvard University Online.

 

I love to learn and explore different aspects of Neuroscience, Psychology and Music. It was Dr. Oliver Sacks's works and his writings which has inspired me to pursue neuroscience as my research career. Public speaking is my another hobby and I am also trying to create awareness on different neurological and psychological conditions.

Now coming to my musical career, I was in class 5 when I picked up Sitar as an instrument to learn. Initially I started learning from Pt. Bivas Samanta. I was formally trained in Imdadkhani Gharana. After around 5 years of training I took a break because of some academic and personal reasons (I think every musician experience this in their life). When I thought of picking up sitar again, I started my training as a disciple of sitar maestro Pt. Purbayan Chaterjee, and started following the Senia Maihar Gharana. Now it is more than 14 years years of my musical journey and I am still learning it. I also love playing Bansuri (Indian Flute) at my leisure. Bansuri resonates me from inside and I love that experience every time I play it. 

Apart from Sitar and Bansuri, which I play regularly and seat for riyaz every day; I can also play little bit of Piano, Djembe, Cajon.

I started writing blogs without any knowledge about the blogging world and created this site on my own. As I have mentioned earlier I love exploring different topics on Neuroscience, Psychology & Music, I thought of sharing my exploration journey with you all. My focus is to make the writings lucid so that everyone can understand and somehow the writings creates awareness on those topics. Also as scientific writer I try to share my words from the field of science in a informative way and I heartily welcome you all to read and explore them. 

Hope You Enjoy...
